Answers to the Most Important Questions about the End Times by Dr John Hart is a book which helps explain what is to come according to the Bible. Dr. Hart does a great job of referencing the Bible in various translations as to what not only the book of Revelations reveals but also throughout the Old and New Testaments. It is said that the book of Revelations is the most difficult to understand of all the Bible but Dr. Hart explains Revelations in easy to understand language and format throughout the book. Dr. Hart does not use scare tactics to force the reader into the same belief as he has but rather used easily defined and well referenced resources to allow the reader to draw their own conclusions. He explains in simple language what the rapture and the tribulation are and then he explains certain controversial concepts such as is the rapture going to take place before or during the tribulation and why he believes as he does. He never assumes the reader knows what he is talking about he explains the concept first. He also doesn't try to make himself appear smarter than he is by making the concept difficult--if his belief is simply what the Bible says he says so. If a concept is symbolic he says so and then explains why he believes that it is not exactly as printed in the Bible. He approaches the Bible teachings as something that can be understood rather than the Bible can only be understood with Dr. Hart's help.
I liked Dr. Hart's simple Bible study helps book. He has made the study of Revelations and easy and fun read. Dr. Hart must be a very popular professor at the Moody Institute. It seems so many writers of prophecy must use scare tactics beyond what is already printed in order to foster belief. I would recommend this reading especially for women who have never found an interest in prophesy--it seems that men always find this subject interesting!
I received this book from BethanyHouse for this review.
